. dr. martin luther king jr. was killed by a single gunshot wound as he stood on a balcony at the lorraine hotel in memphis. just four years before his death, the nobel peace prize committee honored dr. king for combatting racial injustice through nonviolence. and in his acceptance speech, 49 years ago, dr. king said something that still resonates as a challenge to all of us today. "there is a sort of poverty of spirit which still stands in glaring contrast to our scientific and technological abundance. the richer we've become materially, the poorer we've become morally and spiritually. we've learned to fly the air like birds and swi

is keeping dr. king's legacy alive at their national convention and starting today and wrapping up on saturday this convention will touch on issues including voting rights, immigration reform and gun violence. joining me now is the reverend al sharpton, president and founder of the action network. just minutes from now, you'll be moderating a panel there discussing protecting the right to vote in this country, certainly a serious issue that i know we all here devoted a lot of time and coverage to during the last presidential election. as we show everybody a look at this map, the 30 states which have introduced 55 new voting restrictions just in the past three months,s and they include bills requiring photo i.d. to vote, proof of citizenship to register to vote, and then reducing early voting. these are the same type of voter suppression we saw last year. what's next in the fight to protect the right to vote? and what role is n.a.n. playing in it? >> what we're doing in our discussions on that is saying that first we have the case of voting rights section 5 in front of the supreme c

years ago today, dr. martin luther king was assassinated in memphis, tennessee. hundreds gathered in memphis today to honor the civil rights leader. dr. king was supporting striking sanitation workers. the rousing people he gave during that demonstration ended up being his last. he was gunned down the next day, standing on a balcony of the lauren hotel. >>> the new york medical examiner's office says it has uncovered more possible fragments of human remains from the 9/11 disaster. yesterday, they separated out 21 possible human fragments, bringing the total from this latest sifting to 39. the medical examiner will now perform dna testing in hopes of identifying any remains. >>> a proposed privacy law in california has some business groups concerned about frivolous lawsuits. the right to know act would require companies to tell consumers on request exactly what personal information those companies are keeping about them. in a letter to the bill's author, the california chamber of commerce calls the measure unworkable and said it would impose unrealistic mandates on tech companies.

silence of good people to become the status quo, to quote dr. king. we must empower them with the tools that they have and they need to move forward and that is why we spend so much time working together on these issues. we've been to the communities in south philly high school where we saw in one day alone 15 asian students who had to be taken to the emergency room as a result of a persistent pattern of harassment. they didn't speak the king's english. my father spoke ricky ricardo english as well and he would have been a victim of bullying under that circumstance. so we worked with the school district. we don't focus on the criminal prosecution of the specific bully. that's an important element and we work with our partners in local government on that, but our focus has been on the system's issues, of working with the school superintendents, working with the school districts to create a culture of inclusion, to create a culture where people can be accepted for who they are. we've seen bullying in the context of kids with disabilities, kids who couldn't get off the bus because th

to often as the appalling silence of good people that, as you recall, were dr. king's words from the birmingham jail. i've seen that all the time, people who are i think in their core good people who don't know what to do who tend to send the paradigm that boys will be boys and girls will be girls and we're trying to shift that paradigm. and that's why in okahenapen we have an accountability document that calls for --. >> (inaudible) with the idea, like i said, there is not a state going that we don't have a parent that has a dead child. we are dragging everybody to the party because at what point do we say, we can't even say, kids are dying. hundreds and hundreds of children have died when this should be the best times of their life and our most sensitive, compassionate, empathetic, our children are not surviving their childhood. >> one thing i've learned in my line of work, and again i want to thank you for your remarks and your doggedness, civil rights is about persistence. you exude persistence. i have attempted to live a persistent life. the civil rights act of 1964 was

. and then the speech of dr. martin luther king. i have a dream. the speech was in the air. it moved like a wave over the heads of all those people. the voice was strong, a preacher's voice. it reached everyone. i had never heard anything like this and i know i never will. [applause] >> what a powerful testimony, to the multiple means by which people contribute to history. there is no picture of brigitte and leonard freed because they sacrificed every moment on film for the betterment of this nation. that is more than an anecdote. that is part and parcel, perhaps even woof and warp of the very fabric of american conscience that king we have a golden thread into. his majestic oratory that day as miss freed hasn't indicated is powerful and loom news testimony -- loom minute news testimony to the ability of word to move us, of speech to redeem us, and of rhetoric to call us the to higher purposes, deeds done, in the name of ideals for which we are willing to sacrifice. how appropriate then that brigitte freed testifies about the magnmity of spirit of her fallen husband whose shutterbug, who's eye, who's

that hollywood is finally starting work on a definitive biopic about the life of dr. martin luther king jr. it's long overdue. i'm a bit dismayed of the controversy around the film. don't get me wrong, i understand why some are upset steven spielberg cast meryl streep to play the king. seeing meryl streep lead the march on washington and the montgomery bus boycott and preaching from the pulpit in southern baptist churches and writing the letter from the birmingham jail. streep will do this without appearance altering makeup. will take mental gymnastics at first to see this white woman and see dr. king. her monumental talent as an actor will make us see it, as our ability as a nation to see beyond someone's skin. for those who say they're post-racial, this will be your test. until the film comes out, the relationship between streep and black america will be as facebook would say, complicated, but i think this choice on the part of spielberg is a stroke of gen genius. this gives us the modern american culture, black and white remixed into one body and gives us the embodiment of king's philosophy
